“Deep Seated” statement

In this work, I elevate an upturned seat on top of a ladder to aggrandize the presentation. There is a junction between the jar of honey and the metal seat where honey drips through both of them. This temporal loss of honey occurs in a messy transference from the jar above to the floor below. This work was influenced by Buddhist parables, ancient Buddhist monastic medicine, and thinking about wealth disparity in relation to religious and socioeconomic themes.
